Never been out west or down east while these rides will get you there and back. Plenty to see and put on some serious miles doing it!
Please take the time to ensure your
motorcycle is in good running order prior to doing these rides. A lot of riders
had issues with tires,
and general maintenance issues on the last rides. Safety if Critical when doing any long distance riding such as the Cannonball Rides.
You don't want to be left stranded in the middle of nowhere do you? Ask your starting point to give your bike a once over, it's well worth
it to know your bike is ready for the Cannonball!
I hope everyone enjoys the next series of rides. New maps will be posted very soon - I'm on it! :) Cheers Purdyman

NEW - Cannonball Rides Limited Edition Hats
I kept getting emails from riders asking about hats, so I brought a few dozen in for riders. When you order a certificate I can ship it within the box to save on additional postage charges.
Many said they don't always wear the same jacket with their Cannonball patches and wanted this option!

A huge thank you to all dealerships across the country, without their continued support these rides would not be possible. Every year it just gets bigger and better :) More prizes will be given away, more sponsors will come on board - This is what a motorcycle ride should be about - Get out and ride your bike!
Want to add your dealership as a starting point? Go here
There are posters available for download here should you wish to print a couple off and pass around to your friends or local shop owners, power-sport dealerships to get in on the action for the next ride. Should be a lot of fun and something everyone can do!
These are rain or shine events - no rain checks!
Please note: You must return back to your originating starting point to complete the loop prior to the deadline on Sunday. You can start at any of the locations listed on any of the maps, in any of the provinces.
Final starting locations have all been confirmed with only a couple of exceptions - These will not effect any riders outside of possibly another turn here or there. Dealerships are now signing up for the September fall color tour.

Cannonball Rides are not a race. Not a single person WINS when safety is not your first consideration. You need to be consistent with your speed, take short breaks if you wish to complete within the time frame given. Disclaimer: You are on your own, you decide when and where you start. You must finish where you started to complete the loop within the given time. We assume no liability whatsoever before, during or after the ride.
